How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – White Off the Shoulder Dresses

By Tuesday, July 14, 2015 0 Permalink

This seems like the summer of the white dress. More specifically it’s been the summer of the white off the shoulder dress. If you follow any bloggers or fashion people on Snapchat you’ve probably seen a lot of ladies in white off the shoulder dresses, so it made sense to show you two ways to style this dress for your own life. White off the shoulder dresses are beautiful pieces on their own and should get a lot of use this summer. And besides, showing off a little shoulder is a safe way to be a little sexy.

The first outfit is a modern French country look, although maybe more Sonoma than Euro with those pink aviators. It’s an outfit meant for the farmer’s market where you’d fill your tote with lavender, fresh honey, and herbes de Provence. The second dress fits some the Snaps I’ve seen to a T. It’s a look that works at an LA pool party or the Hamptons, complete with choice accessories and likely a lob haircut. These outfits are only suggestions as to how to wear this piece day or night, but if you’re looking for an on-trend flirty summer look, white off the shoulder dresses are a must-try.

2. TOPSHOP Crushable Floppy Hat

For this take on new French country it made sense to give a relaxed daytime outfit, meant for walking around, a little romantic flavor. The standout piece, besides those amazing rose-colored glasses, is the off the shoulder maxi dress. It’s simple, yet stunning so you don’t need many accessories. The hat isn’t necessary but nice to have if you find yourself wandering the farmer’s market. A few gold bangles and a rustic bucket bag completes the look.

The nighttime look is all about the accessories. A white dress can be a standout piece for sure, but nighttime calls for a little more oomph. While simple heeled sandals and red lips could complete this outfit immediately, I went the fun route with a hologram clutch, metal framed mirrored sunglasses, and statement earrings. Those are the stunner pieces of the outfit, but add a delicate necklace and bunch of simple gold rings and you’re really ready to party.
